Bad road surface in Pollok Park is hazardous for cycling

The road into Pollok Park from near Pollokshaws West station past the police dog training place has so many holes and grooves in it that it creates a hazard for cyclists. Choices for people cycling have been reduced by the closure of the stableyard route, and now by the flood works. Much of the road is shaded, and it is not easy to pick out the hazards in time to avoid sudden changes of direction. Novice and less confident cyclists cannot match even the 15 mph limit that cars are supposed to stick to. Cars follow too closely, want to pass, and do not understand why a cyclist may weave about unpredictably. This section of road urgently needs to be resurfaced. The path on the northern side needs to be widened to allow cycling as well as walking.
